What is a dental emergency?
A “dental emergency” is a broad term that covers any high priority dental treatment which requires immediate attention. Usually if there is a dental emergency it may be accompanied by pain of varying severity but this is not always the case. If there is a lot of pain in your teeth or mouth however this is usually a sure sign of a dental emergency. Pain from a dental emergency can occur from either the tooth itself or from the surrounding tissues.
